Welcome to the Control Freaks Blog Tour ... Christmas Style!! I am sooo excited!! You should just have come from the ever-amazing Gretchen Barron's blog. She ALWAYS has something wonderful to share!! Our theme this month? Christmas!! Let's get started!!

Moving on to something a little simple ... this is a quick and easy card with just a little bit of bling goin' on ... I think I am totally in love with this Champagne Glimmer Paper!!

Stamps: Evergreen
Paper: Old Olive, Very Vanilla, Champagne Glimmer Paper
Ink: Early Espresso, Old Olive, Versamark

And last, but certainly not least ... here's a fun little Christmas stocking full of candy canes!! I have been resisting buying the Stocking Bigz Die since last year ... I FINALLY caved this year!! I had such a good time making this little stocking! Freakin' cute, right???

Stamps: NONE
Paper: NONE
Accessories: Stocking Bigz Die, Designer Fabric Essentials, Snow Flurry Bigz Die, Brights (Red) Glimmer Brad, Old Olive Scalloped Polka Dot Ribbon, White Felt, Sewing Machine, Candy Canes
